SEC helmet stickers: Week 10
By Edward Aschoff and Chris Low
It's time to take a look at the stars from the weekend in the SEC:
Jeff Demps, RB, Florida: Florida needed some sort of offensive spark this weekend against Vanderbilt and it was Demps who provided it. He carried the ball 23 times for a career-high 158 yards and two touchdowns. Without Chris Rainey in the lineup, Demps was left to carry the rushing load for the Gators, and he more than did his part as Florida racked up 197 rushing yards in the Gators' 26-21 win over the Commodores.
Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia: The Bulldogs were without a slew of running backs, so Georgia dismantled New Mexico State through the air. Murray showed off his arm by getting 238 yards through the air and five touchdowns. All of Murray's touchdowns came during a second quarter in which the Bulldogs scored 42 points in their 63-16 win over the Aggies.
Danny Trevathan, LB, Kentucky: Trevathan continued to play like one of the top linebackers not only in the SEC, but in the country during a 30-13 win over Ole Miss. He entered the game leading the conference in tackles and left with 17 total tackles, including 1.5 for a loss of 9 yards. He also matched his jersey number with an interception that he returned 22 yards in the second quarter.
Dennis Johnson, RB, Arkansas: Johnson's consistency has been an issue this season, but he was every bit the running back Arkansas needed to keep the offense balanced during a 44-28 win over South Carolina. He carried the ball 15 times for 86 yards, and while he didn't get in the end zone on the ground, he kept drives going with his feet. But he wasn't kept out of the end zone completely, as he returned a kickoff 98 yards in the first quarter.
Brad Wing, P, LSU: It's not every day that a kicker makes this list, let alone a punter, but Wing had a special day against Alabama. He punted six times, with four being downed inside the Crimson Tide's 20-yard line. One of his punts was downed at Alabama's 5-yard line and one at the 4-yard line. He also saved the Tigers with his 73-yard punt that completely changed the game in the fourth quarter of game they won 9-6 in overtime.
